Estonians voted on Sunday in a parliamentary election with center-right Prime Minister Taavi Roivas favored to form a new pro-NATO coalition and fend off a challenge by an opposition party that wants better ties with neighboring Russia.

Roivas' Reform Party, which has stressed fears of Russian interference in Estonia after Moscow annexed Ukraine's Crimea region last year, led with 26 percent support in a final TNS EMOR poll on Friday against 22 for the center-left Center Party.



A free-marketeer and the youngest European Union leader at 35, Roivas is likely to be best placed to form a new coalition, even if the Center Party wins the most votes.
